Brown, Catalogue of the Mughal Coins in Lucknow (Lukhnaw)
This is a standard reference for the Mughals (Moghuls), still not replaced by a general survey. This volume includes the preface, introduction, the very important list of mint cities with tables of the issues known from each, an index of ornaments, and the illustrations of the coins. There is a second volume of the work, the catalogue of the coins themselves, which unfortunately has not been added to the Internet Archive yet.
Anyone who collects or studies the coins, or with an interest in Mughal history, should download this volume.
